One of the most significant events to take place this year is the breakup of Electronic Arts and FIFA. To be more specific, the deal was not renewed some time ago; nonetheless, the year 2023 will mark the departure of the famous naming of the major football game series. This will be the year when the contract is no longer in effect. EA Sports FC will be born at the turn of September and October, which will continue what we have been getting for the past several years under the banner of a prominent football company. This will take place at the same time as the birth of EA Sports FIFA.
It is interesting to note that Electronic Arts may have some plans to take the game to an even higher level, despite the fact that they will no longer be working together with such a massive corporation. The Premier League, which is the highest class of football in England, has told the clubs that it is creating a six-year cooperation with EA, as was reported by Mark Kleinman, one of the journalists who works on a daily basis at Sky Sports.
Interestingly, the value of the deal itself is anticipated to be close to £500 million (more than twice what it is now). Therefore, we can be certain that the Premier League will be presented in the future game in a really professional manner, and taking into consideration the magnitude of the financial scale, it appears that Electronic Arts will want to use it even more than they did in the past. Will the English Premier League serve as the primary focal point of the new football edition? In the coming weeks and months, we will find out!
Exclusive: The Premier League told clubs at a meeting today that a new six-year partnership with Electronic Arts, the video games group, would be worth close to £500m (more than twice the current annual value) and underlines the League’s ongoing commercial pull. More soon.
